We made the move to France at the end of 2018, after many years of visiting France we finally took the leap and moved here. After many years of working within education and the property industry we decided to live the dream.... and have not regretted a thing. <br/>Waking up every day in this beautiful, rural part of France is a dream, we pinch ourselves every day. Come and share the experience with us, even for a short time.

|Why this location?||We both love the rural countryside and have many birds and wildlife visit our garden everyday. Although we have peace and quiet, it's only 1.5km to our nearest restaurant and 5km to our local village where you will find all the facilities one would need for everyday living. There are river beaches, history, architecture, cycling, walking, watersports and countless beautiful French villages to visit. We have not found it hard to find some activity we cannot involve ourselves in, or, just to sit on a lovely hot summers day in a village square watching the world go by.|
|Unique benefits of property||Guests can enjoy peace and quiet, with beautiful views of the rural French countryside. Enjoying the relaxing atmosphere around the pool and a bbq on those lazy summer evenings. Our gite has been renovated to a high standard and we offer our guests a clean, comfortable home from home with a welcoming, friendly atmosphere.

Masion Belle Vue has a welcoming atmosphere and is very family orientated, we'd would love to welcome you to our peace of heaven in the rural French countryside.|
A beautiful village located on the banks of the river Dronne, known locally as Venice of Périgord and only a drive of 29km. The Benedictine Abbey has its origins dating back to the 8th century. At the foot of the cliffs that loom behind the village, you can find the troglodyte dwellings, these were used by the original monks from the abbey and where you can find the sculpture of "The Last Judgement". You can amble through the beautiful streets, brouse through the shops or sit and enjoy and meal in one of the many restaurants.
Brantome hosts its market on a Friday.
Located not far from Brantome, located on the banks of the river Dronne. Chateaux de Bourdeilles dominated the village. It's two distinct castles, one older, the second more recent renaissance one. A beautiful village to spend a relaxing summer afternoon, perhaps with a picnic by the river and a cool glass of wine.
A very beautiful French village with many restaurants, bars to have lunch, or just a coffee. If you would just prefer a walk, then there are a range of public gardens in the shadow of the Chateaux. There are a number of medieval half timber framed houses in the old part of the town. Nontron has a long history reputedly dating back 3000 years, there has been evidence of prehistoric settlement in the area.
Market day is Saturday.
Riberac's Friday market is reputed to be the biggest in the Périgord, well worth a visit. Eglise Notre Dame is a fairly new church built in the late 30's, reminiscent of the nearby Cathedral of Perigeaux. Riberac has a number of restaurants, bars, and shops to browse. Nearby is Foret de la Dauble where you will find lots of opportunities for hiking.
